The Florida II features the highly successful Teknicraft Design signature hull shape. Teknicraft’s unique design utilizes hydrodynamic lift produced by a hydrofoil that is affixed amid-ship between the two demi-hulls. The hydrofoil displaces approximately one-third of the vessel’s weight, which in turn reduces water being displaced by the hull and results in a smaller wake wash. Smaller wake wash mitigates environmental concerns about shoreline damage caused by the large wakes of other more conventional type catamarans. The foil also significantly enhances the performance of the vessel. The hull form is a semi-planing type catamaran. It employs a combination of symmetrical and asymmetrical sponson shapes, thereby combining the attributes of both shapes into one hull. The symmetrical bow-section ensures directional stability in short swell conditions and following seas, while the asymmetrical amidships and aft sections ensure softness of ride and reduced wetted area which enhances comfort and economy. The catamaran hull has a high tunnel ceiling with a large opening between the sponsons, which allows free movement of wind-waves without slamming on the wet-deck. Also, horizontal steps on the inside of the tunnel walls act both as chines to deflect green water from the hull surface, and to break up the solid water into spray. The high beam to length ratio of the catamaran hull provides a large deck area for placing survey equipment, deck cargo, or other supplies.
